    Hi, I've been a member of this forum for a few years now and I love coming back and fourth to share photos of Rocco & Lady (RIP) and for some reason phone keeps telling me there's something wrong with the website claiming it's dangerous which is not the case since I've been here for so long and nothing bad has happened. Why is my phone telling me this? I have a Google Chrome browser so I think the owner may need to contact Google and let them know that dogforum is a safe site.

    When did this start happening? Does it happen on the home page of the website as well as in individual threads?

    I got this this morning in Firefox. It would seem the certificate is out of date:

    Web sites prove their identity via certificates. Firefox does not trust this site because it uses a certificate that is not valid for www.dogforum.co.uk. The certificate is only valid for dogforum.co.uk.

    Error code: SSL_ERROR_BAD_CERT_DOMAIN

    I've also been unable to log in over the last few days.

    Thanks arealhuman - I'll pass that message on to Josie. We've moved server hosts in the last few days, which is why you weren't able to log on.

    I put "dog forum uk" into a Google search and the site doesn't appear, it used to be the second one down.

    I think - though don't know - it takes time for the Google Bots to wander around and work out what's where - as we've moved server, it may get seen as a 'new' website so will be a long way down in the rankings.

    I've been unable to access the site for several days also.

    Hello All.

    Apologises for the issues you have been facing. We have moved servers and were unaware it would cause problems with the forum.

    I have spoken to Oli (my technical support! Ha) about the notice everyone is receiving when they first go into the site. This will be something to do with the new server.

    We appreciate your patience!

    That's odd - I'm on Firefox on my PC. It might be the security certificate issue. Unfortunately, there are still a few issues with the new server, which Oli is trying to sort out.

    It was the same message @arealhuman was getting and just like @Richard & Patsy said, whenever I would type the site in Google, it would no longer appear at the top.

    Everything is fine now, no more warning messages but I think @Josie should know that the site seems to take very long to load up now for some odd reason, unless it's to do with her moving servers, I don't know :/

    Yes, I'm finding it very variable, sometimes as fast as ever, and sometimes timing out. Don't worry, they are working on it, but it's been a lot more problematic than they expected so it might take a while before we're completely back to normal.

    Hello everyone!

    Sorry we have had some issues recently! The server we changed which messed up the site but now we’ve switched back and all should be good again!

    Sorry for the inconvenience
